Kla Project is a music group origin Indonesia which was formed by Katon Bagaskara, Lilo (Romulo Radjadin), Adi Adrian, and Ari Burhani in 1988. Kla own name from the initials of the band, while the use of letter "A" small aims to indicate the existence of two personnel who have the initial letter.

In Jak Jazz Festival 2009.
They released first album "KLa" in 1989 as produced hits Rentang Asmara, Tentang Kita, Waktu Tersisa, and Laguku. In 2001, KLa launch second album titled "Kedua" in which there is a monumental track Yogyakarta. Meanwhile, the third album (Pasir Putih - 1992) hits like they got are Tak Bisa Ke Lain Hati and Belahan Jiwa.

Although at that time KLa Project's music is more advanced than their era zamannya, because the music with the melayu rhythm is still popular, they succeeded in stealing many hearts music listener.

In 1996, KLa Project run a great acoustic concert titled KLakustik involving musicians such as Hendri Lamiri (Violin), Budi Haryono (Drums), and others.

In March 2001, Lilo exit from the band. However, KLa still go on despite leaving only Katon and Adi. Then in 2003, KLa decided to add three new personnel, namely Erwin Prasetya, Joel Vai and Hari Goro. Their names are changed to NuKLa. NuKLa was issued one album in 2004 titled the "New Chapter".

In 2006, Erwin Prasetya decided to quit because of differences NuKLa vision. Not long after that, Katon Bagaskara announced that NuKLa changed its name back into KLa Project. One reason is the difficulty to change the image of the KLa Project become new.

At the beginning of the year 2009, KLa launched their reunion album KLa Return with their three beginning members: Katon, lilo, and Adi.

Some members of KLa Project have their solo career. Katon has released six albums, Adi launched two albums, and lilo one album.
